Jennifer Sydnam, RT(R), RDMS, RVT


I moved to Alaska in 2002 seeking outdoor adventure and I fell in love with this great state. I am a wife, a mother of twins and a cancer survivor.  Through these experiences, I understand the importance of an accurate and timely diagnosis. I strive to provide the highest standard of care to my patients with compassion and understanding. I feel very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to truly impact people’s lives through ultrasound.

Alex Chastagner


     I was born and raised in the great state of Alaska. I attended ultrasound school in Anaheim, California and I'm excited to be back in Alaska working at Real Time, Inc. 

      Some of my favorite pastimes include spending time with friends, drinking large quantities of decaf coffee, and playing late night volleyball. I enjoy going on mission trips to South America and getting involved with community outreach programs.

     Along with my love of aiding in the care of your little one, it is important to me to provide accurate, diagnostic ultrasounds that help patients find wholeness in their health journey.

Alicia Estrada

Office Manager

     I have lived in Alaska since the age of 8 when my family relocated from Florida with the military. I have been married for 17 years and have 4 very enthusiastic children.  My career in the medical field began in 2000 when I accepted a position in medical collections.  In 2008 I made the transition to imaging scheduler and receptionist and knew I had found a new passion.

     I enjoy being a part of a patient’s journey to better health, finding a diagnosis or becoming a mother.  I am active in the community and also enjoy gardening, tropical vacations, cheering on my children in sports and riding our RZR with family.

     I enjoy connecting with providers and their office staff to ensure timeliness of care for their patients and clients.

Emily Niclas

Front Desk Administrator

I was born in Canada and moved to Alaska in 2001.  I live in Wasilla with my husband, four children and our two dogs. I love spending time outdoors and enjoying everything Alaska has to offer. As well as my family, I am very committed to serving my community as a fire fighter at West Lakes Fire Department. After having been taken so well care of with all of my ultrasound needs with my kids, I realized that I could utilize my experience in taking care of others the way they took care of me. I look forward to being able to answer any questions you may have, or assist in the scheduling, checking and paperwork aspects of your visit.
